Las Vegas' aviation hub served more passengers in May than in the same month last year, according to statistics released Monday.

According to McCarran Airport, 3,757,979 passengers flew through the hub in May 2013, marking a 2.6-percent jump from the previous May.

Despite the surge, McCarran's 2013 year-to-date number is still under performing the total from last year. A total of 17,107,115 traveled through McCarran through the first five months of 2013, marking a three-tenths of a percent decrease.

Southwest remains as the top carrier at McCarran, serving nearly 1.5 million passengers in May. The top five May airlines were rounded out by Delta, United, American and Allegiant.
